Today's sermon: "Holy Scripture as Holy Colloquy"
Key word for today: Colloquy. A term used by St. Ignatius to describe a divinely initiated conversation that God carries on with humans.
Article 4:

We believe in the plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, by which we understand the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, given by divine inspiration, inerrantly revealing the will of God concerning us in all things necessary to our salvation, so that whatever is not contained therein is not to be enjoined as an article of faith.
Article 4 remix:

We believe that all of Scripture is equally inspired, that is, equally revealed by God. We believe that all Scripture is holy, that is, completely good. We believe that the 66 books that make up the Old and New Testaments are divinely inspired, that is, revealed by God. We believe that they, without error, reveal God’s will for us regarding what is necessary for our salvation. Thus, whatever is not contained in Scripture cannot be an article of faith.
